THE electorate of Riverstone has secured $267,280 in funding for six projects through the NSW Government’s 2023 Community Building Partnership Program. 
Member for Riverstone Warren Kirby said the funds will deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities including new canteen equipment for the Schofields Junior Rugby League Club and much-needed seating and event equipment for the Quakers Hill Junior Rugby League Club.
“This is fantastic news for Riverstone. This grassroots funding will directly help create a more vibrant and inclusive local community with positive social outcomes. I congratulate all the organisations that were successful in their application and look forward to seeing how these projects make a real difference for community groups in the area,” Mr Kirby said.
The full list of successful projects in the Riverstone electorate for the 2023 round is: 
• Canteen equipment for the Schofields Junior Rugby League Club. 
• A public address system for St John XXIII Parish. 
• A 12-seater minivan for the Multicultural Family Support Network. 
• Works to raise the ceiling of Riverstone Anglican Church. 
• Seating and sound equipment for the Quakers Hill Junior Rugby League Club; and 
• Better accessibility to the community garden facilities at Northwest Community Services. 
The Community Building Partnership program has funded more than 19,700 community projects since it commenced in 2009.
